Title of Proposal: Multifamily Housing Service Coordinator Program.
OMB Control Number, if applicable: 25020447.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD evaluates the grant applications (SF424 and related documents) for the need and proposed use of grant funds and owners' ability to administer awarded funds of the Multifamily Housing Service Coordinator Program. HUD staff will use requests for extensions to evaluate anticipated program costs and the continued need for the program. The semiannual Performance Reports will be used to determine how well grant funds met stated program goals. Grantees will also be able to retain data on the effectiveness of the program and how well the public was served. The Payment Voucher is used to monitor grant funds for eligible costs over the term of the grant, and the grantee may similarly use this voucher to track and record their requests for payment reimbursement for grant funded expenses.
Agency form numbers, if applicable: HUD50080SCMF, HUD91186/ 91186i, HUD91186A & HUD92456.
Estimation of the total numbers of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: The estimated total number of burden hours needed to prepare the information collection is 51, 100; the number of respondents is 6,700 generating approximately 14,400 annual responses; the frequency of response is quarterly, semiannually, and annually; and the estimated time needed to prepare the response varies from 15 minutes to 40 hours.
Status of the proposed information collection: Extension of a currently approved collection.
Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. chapter 35, as amended.
